Hand carved fish-hook necklace which is beautifully presented on an adjustable waxed cord with complex herringbone binding - this is a lovely light pendant that is ideal for children, or for you if you're looking for a smaller piece.

The Mammoth Tusk used for this piece is CERTIFIED 34,690 YEARS OLD (+/- 815 years). 

We had our mammoth material carbon dated to get an accurate measure of its age. The testing was done for us by GNS Science, a New Zealand Crown Research Institute and New Zealand's leading provider of Earth, geoscience and isotope research - so their assessment of this material is as accurate as is possible using radiocarbon dating technology.  

The fish hook symbolises prosperity, abundance, strength and determination. It is worn to show a respect for the ocean and as an amulet provides protection on a journey, particularly when traveling over water.

We provide this beautiful pendant on a hand plaited Burgundy, Wapiti Brown or Khaki, adjustable cord - please use the drop-down box to select your preference. Also included, one of our 'Kia Ora' cards, which explains the meaning behind the Hei-Matau (hook) design.
